French Market Shopping
For a few days every April, locals and visitors alike can imitateur le Francais at the Georgetown French Market. In an effort to emulate the pleasant atmosphere of outdoor markets in Paris, restaurateurs and artisans will take their goods to the streets for two days of outdoor commerce.
If a Parisian afternoon in the heart of Washington D.C. isn’t enough incentive to go le shopping, then the French Market’s enormous weekend savings might be your ticket. Vendors from around town will take to the sidewalks and streets to offer patrons up to 75 percent off their most popular and sought-after goods. To be sure, vendors always turn up with stellar merchandise.
In addition to all the fantastique shopping that will be happening during the French Market weekend, there will also be amazing food. While Georgetown is blessed with upscale cuisine from across the globe, many purveyors will be celebrating the weekend’s Parisian theme, with sweet or savory buckwheat crepes, as well as French merguez sausages. Other vendors will continue to cook up their well-known cuisines from Italy, Vietnam, and more.
